ABOUT DJ PEAVEY

In 1993, when Andreas M. bought his very first record, the dealer could tell by the twinkle in the twelve year-old’s eyes that this boy would return for more very soon. Andreas didn’t prove him wrong: today he is known to the local music scene as DJ Peavey and on his shelves are approximately a thousand electronic music records. His enormous collection reaches from early Detroit- and Chicago- Techno through Drum’n’Bass to a vast amount of House Music.

But Peavey’s musical background goes even deeper. By the age of six he started taking lessons on the alto sax and has been gathering a lot of musical experience performing with a couple of different bands since then.

As a DJ he began to serve the crowd with tasteful music at small events, such as school parties or weddings, following only the one aim: Making people dance and shout for more of his eclectic and unique sound.

Since 2002 Peavey studies “Popular Music & Media” at Detmold Conservatory and at the University of Paderborn. In conjunction with his scholastics he started working for Peppermint Jam Records in October 2004 gaining insight into both, music production and the day-to-day business of a record label.
